From Kenoshas buried forest on the shores of Lake Michigan to the Wyalusing maple that saw the last of the passenger pigeons- from Aldo Leopolds good oak to the disappeared elms of State Street in Madison, these stories open up a fascinating ecological and social history of Wisconsin to young readers.

Other stories showcase the states history: readers will encounter Chief Black Hawk hiding in a hickory, Civil War soldiers enlisting for battle under sign-up trees, and trees used to hang criminals without a trial. They will also learn of large and unusual trees like the Columbus Cottonwood, which was over 26 feet around or, in the words of the author, so large that it would take you and eight of your friends with your arms outstretched to reach all the way around it!Told in a compelling narrative style and supplemented with historic photographs and illustrations, these stories instill a sense of place and understanding of the rich heritage of our trees and forests.

The book also carries an environmental message encouraging children to appreciate and manage natural resources wisely and respectfully. The highly accessible format includes a map of historic trees locations, a glossary of tree terms, a tree identification chart, and a list of suggested books and websites for further reading.
